Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury are reportedly considering getting a protection dog after being burgled.
The couple, who met on Love Island in 2019, lost a reported £800,000 of possessions and jewellery when their Manchester flat was targeted by thieves last month.
According to reports from The Sun, the couple are looking at getting a protection dog, which costs around £25,000, as extra security.
The pair moved out of the flat immediately after the break-in and are renting another flat which is said to be costing £12,000 per month.
A source told The Sun: ‘Most of the footballers in the area have them [dogs] and the burglars just stay away because these animals are ferocious.
‘As soon as the burglary was discovered, Molly said she’d never live in the flat again and that she wanted the security of living in a house.
‘But the prices for rent are crazy and they are looking to buy somewhere asap. Tommy also says he wants a guard dog because they are a real deterrent.’
Protection dogs receive extensive training for personal and home protection and are trained to follow commands from their owner.
It comes after Molly-Mae spoke out about the devastating burglary on her YouTube channel, revealing the thieves had made off with most of the couple’s belongings.
She explained: ‘Tommy and I were actually robbed. It was without a doubt the worst thing that’s ever happened to me – to us I’d probably say – and it was just awful, horrendous, terrible. So we’ve been dealing with a lot.
‘Our apartment was robbed, ransacked, emptied, you name it. What they said in the articles was true, they took everything. We were left with not a lot of stuff at all.
‘I’ve been dealing with emotions I didn’t think I’d be dealing with at a time like this, like feeling guilt. I never thought if I was ever to be robbed I’d be feeling guilty.
‘But I think seeing a lot of the things on social media and seeing a lot of people’s opinions about why we got robbed I started to think “God was this my fault? Did I share too much? Did I do the wrong thing?”’
Molly added that she would no longer be sharing as much of her home online in order to be extra cautious about the information available about where she and Tommy are living and the layout of their property.
She added: ‘That’s another thing I want to talk about in this video: how things are going to have to change now. At the end of the day, with a job like mine, my job is to literally share my life, that’s how I make a living.
‘I share every aspect of my life with you, things I buy, where I live, what I do with my boyfriend, where I’m going, it’s really hard to find that balance of sharing – so that you guys want to keep up with my life and see what I’m doing – but then also keeping my life private so that I stay safe.
‘I think I potentially lost that balance. Karma will come for the people that did it. It’s evil.’
